WonderCon 2015: Warner Bros.
I might not be the ideal person to talk about Mad Max: Fury Road. The third sequel to an unfamiliar franchise leaves me very little to grasp onto. But I will congratulate Warners for showing us a full scene as opposed to just an extended trailer or sizzle reel, though they did that too. The scene was a decent action one but its gratuitous inclusion of women in wet, white garments and a quizzical overuse of undercranked motion made it less than tantalizing.
San Andreas, on the other hand, is more the kind of thing I’m interested in seeing at these kinds of conventions, even if I’m ultimately not interested in the movie itself. The trailer gives us a 2012 style natural destruction orgy with a family at the center. That the family is played by Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario (the latter two were on the panel) lends a little extra appeal but I don’t see myself lining up on opening day for another CGI extravaganza.
